Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Space---The Final Frontier (and just who was at the helm of this intergalactic bus?)

I was poking around last night, because you just gotta do that, and came across johnny on the spot's rec of the '91 Halloween show with Gary Duncan from Quicksilver. Out of curiosity, I went straight to the jam that was footnoted as featuring Kesey's eulogy to Bill Graham. Didn't hear it. Listened through Dark Star to see if the asterisks misdirected me, but I didn't hear it there, either. Could be a problem with my speaker connection or something, but I cued up Space before the aforementioned jam and listened for it there and still came up snake-eyes. I'd still like to hear it if anyone can point me in the right direction,

But that's not the point of my inquiry. I actually have a personnel question.

During Space, there was an interval immediately following Drums of what sounded to be an array of phantom noises, crashing, whirring effects that may have been produced by someone other than the band members themselves. It brought to mind one of the only post-1989 shows I saw, Buckeye Lake '93, when they did what I think they were doing at this Halloween '91 show, which was to apparently give some mid-second-set down-time for everybody in the band while sound continued to envelope the audience. When they did this at the Ohio show I was at, I was actually quite amazed. Some might interpret is as laziness on the part of the players. After all, audience members bought tickets to watch The Grateful Dead, not necessarily to watch no one. However, I thought of it as just another augmentation of the unique auditory experience that a Grateful Dead concert was, incredible ear candy to supplement your psyche.

What I want to know is this: who was responsible for the noises in question? Bob Bralove? Healy? Or was it all just some kind of mass hallucination?

any chance it could be sustain from Mickey's Beam? In spite of being a damn fine soundman I know Healy did some shit that I am not a fan of ( like messing with weirs vocals ), but I would hope he didn't create something from nothing.

Hey Bryan, that jam ( at least on my copy ) is towards the end of Dark Star right before drums. You HAVE to check it out. I have a copy of the FOB from here so I know it has to be on there. Tell me what you think.

here´s a mighty fine sbd and i´m listening to kessey´s rap right now. sounds perfectly clear. the trashing of the garbage cans like sounds during that jam are, and always were,in mikey´s department, i believe

this is one of greatest shows in dead history - it´s eternal, but it´s so fucking SAD. can´t listen to it all the time. gary duncan´s contribution here is immense ..... spoonful > dark star > kessey rap > space > jam > dark star > last time ..... standing on the moon - maybe the best ever. the whole show is a priceless gem

What I've heard sounds very good. High energy, strong commitment.

Maybe it was Mickey, but as I mentioned, I did have the experience of being at one show when a substantial stretch of the middle part of Set Two consisted of sound effects and nobody on stage, or at least no one was visible from a vantage point in the audience that was very close. All I know is what I saw.

Thanks. Will have to put on the back burner for now and listen later when time allows.
